I reject the intent to enable a new language, in pre-production development, to freeload on the reputation of Perl
Hum, Is Perl6 in pre-production still?.
The brand here is Larry Wall plus minions army (all of them Perl masters if I'm not wrong), not Perl. Perl6 can afford, and should afford, to freeload on the reputation of its own creator. The opposite would be illogical. Would be like to say that "only Ford T are true Ford cars and the next models freeload in Ford T success". Well, not only freeload, also improve it with better security measures, more comfort, less noise, etc
